You need to look at the entire natal chart, as each planet and aspects shed a different light on opportunities to love, be loved, and have sex. I would go so far to say that Mars is important for the physicality of love and that Venus is important for the emotional enjoyment. All other planets can have similar attributes, like Uranus makes you feel original and different, and will keep your love fresh and edgy, and make sure that it’s not just the same old….
Venus and Mars, the sexual team of the planetary pantheon, work like a couple that’s been together for a long time. And – just like such a couple – that may be good or it may be difficult.
Venus and Mars represent the two poles of sexuality, female and male. Think of this polarity as being magnetic in nature, with Venus representing the principle of attraction and Mars the principle of repulsion.
The position of Venus in our birth chart describes our values. It represents that which we are attracted to, and also what is attracted to us. Mars describes the quality of energy that we send out into the world to get that which Venus wants, and to protect us against that which Venus does not like. In the first case, Mars represents our ambition and our creative drive. In the second case, Mars describes how we defend ourselves, and how we get angry.
The signs of Venus and Mars within our charts describe how each of us expresses this polarity. The houses these two planets fall in point to activities and experiences that provide a context for this expression. Most important is the relationship of Venus and Mars to each other, and then to other planets.
